What can a lawyer do for the victim of a motorcycle accident?
Riding your motorcycle is likely an important source of stress release and relaxation. Suddenly, your passion becomes a nightmare when you are injured due to someone else’s negligence. Dealing with your injuries alone can be stressful and overwhelming. To make matters worse, the insurance company hopes to pressure you into a quick settlement for a fraction of the value of your motorcycle injury claim.
The insurance companies are not concerned that you receive necessary compensation so that you can afford necessary medical treatment. As a victim in a motorcycle accident, you should never handle your injury case alone. You need an injury lawyer who will deal with the insurance company while you to focus on recovering from your injuries.
It is important to hire an injury lawyer because an experienced lawyer can and will ensure that your injury claim is properly preserved. Also, an experienced injury lawyer will seek all available sources of compensation – including uninsured motorist protection and third-party liability.

How much does a motorcycle accident lawyer cost?
If you were injured riding your motorcycle, you are likely concerned with how you are going afford your medical bills. The last thing you need is another out-of-pocket expense. Many people think that they cannot afford a personal injury lawyer – but this is not true!
If you were injured in any accident, a personal injury lawyer is the best investment that you can make. Injury lawyers are paid on what is called a contingency fee. This means that if we do not win your case, we do not get paid. Better yet, you never have to pay any money out of your pocket. An injury lawyer will take a predetermined portion of the settlement as payment for handling your case.
Be careful. Not all injury lawyers charge the same percentage. The large law firms spend tens of thousands of dollars every month to advertise on billboards and television. As a result, they almost always charge a higher percentage than other personal injury law firms. They also tend settle you case quickly for less money because their focus is generating quick settlements – rather than quality of legal representation. Our law firm charges the lowest standard rate of any personal injury law firm so you can be confident that you will receive the maximum compensation for your injury.
Importantly, Lawyer Jason McLendon has a guarantee that he will never receive more money from a settlement than a client. After all, you were injured. You deserve maximum compensation for your injuries. A shocking number of injury lawyers do not follow this practice and will regularly take more money from your injury case than you will receive.

What are injuries normally occur in motorcycle accidents?
Motorcycle accident victims typically experience serious injuries. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you recover from your injuries by referring you for the medical treatment available to address your symptoms.
Common injuries include:
Head trauma is the most common injury seen in motorcycle accidents. Unfortunately, motorcycles do not provide much protection when struck by a vehicle which that is much heavier. Accident victims will frequently strike their head on the ground or another vehicle in the moments after being involved in an accident. Many victims do not even remember the accident or striking their head. Head injuries typically cause dizziness, nausea, memory issues and blurred vision. An experienced lawyer will recognize these symptoms and immediately refer the injury victim to seek immediate medical attention. Head injuries can be very serious if left untreated. Accident victims who have head trauma are likely entitled to substantial compensation. If you believe that you or a family member suffered a head injury in a motorcycle accident, you should seek immediate medical attention and then contact a personal injury lawyer to fight for the compensation that you deserve.
Another frequent injury resulting from a motorcycle accident is broken bones. These painful injuries generally result in extreme discomfort and significantly disrupt an accident victim’s life. If you were involved in a motorcycle accident and sustained broken bones, you should contact a personal injury lawyer. Insurance companies will try to take advantage of accident victims with broken bones to settle their case for far less than the true value of your injury and suffering. You are likely entitled to significant compensation if you broke a bone during an accident. Call us today (404) 565-1618 for a free consultation with a personal injury lawyer.
Neck pain is experienced by nearly every accident victim. The most common cause of neck pain is from what is called whiplash. Whiplash occurs when a car accident victim’s is abruptly forced back and forth due to a violent impact. Sometimes neck pain is indecisive of a more serious injury. Thus, it is important to see a doctor who can diagnose the cause of your neck pain.

Back pain is another common injury experienced by almost all accident victims. If you are experiencing back pain, a personal injury lawyer can refer you to a doctor who will find and treat the cause of your pain. Sometimes, back pain will subside with conservative medical treatment. However, more serious back issues sometimes require steroid injections or surgery to heal from injures sustained in a motorcycle accident.

Sometimes, an accident victim will have pain that radiates from their back to other parts of the body. Radiating pain is usually a sign of a more serious injury. Sometimes, radiating pain is caused by a bulging or herniated disk. Generally, these types of injuries will not heal without immediate medical treatment. Medical professionals will generally first recommend less invasive procedures such as steroid injections to treat disk issues. If the pain persists after injections, surgery is typically required. Accident victims who experience this type of injury are likely entitled to substantial compensation. If you or someone you know is suffering from radiating pain after being involved in a motorcycle accident, contact a personal injury lawyer today.
All information about injuries is meant to be an informative guide based upon our experience as a personal injury law firm. However, this is not meant to replace advice from a medical professional. The medical treatment you receive should always be determined by a heath care professional. A personal injury lawyer can help you find the right doctor to address your symptoms.

How much is a motorcycle accident worth?
People injured in motorcycle accidents frequently want to know how much their injury claim is worth. There are no hard and fast rules about the value of your injuries. As a general rule, the total value of your injuries is left for a jury to determine.
That said, a powerful legal team experienced in motorcycle accidents gives you the best chance of receiving the compensation that you deserve without a lengthy delay waiting for a jury trial. An experienced injury lawyer will demand substantial compensation from the insurance company using your injuries, medical bills, lost wages, the agony that you endured.
The most important factor that determines the value of most bodily injury claims is the extent of your injuries. Typically, serious injuries are also accompanied by significant medical expenses.
Logically, a settlement for someone with serious injuries will be greater than a settlement for someone with only minor injuries. In theory, a settlement for a motorcycle injury victim is designed to compensate you for your pain and suffering, out of pocket expenses and time spent seeking medical treatment. In legal terms, you are being “made whole” to put you in the place you were prior to your accident. Because the proceeds of your injury settlement are intended to make you whole, you will receive these funds tax free.
Sometimes, a somewhat serious injury will not be accompanied by expensive medical bills. An example of this is a broken bone. Motorcycle victims with broken bones will endure pain and suffering throughout a lengthy recovery; but there is relatively little medical treatment involved in this injury.
Generally speaking, the more medical expenses that you incur due to your injures, the more your claim is worth. This is because substantial medical treatment is generally an indicator of severe injuries.
However, you cannot expect to be rewarded by accumulating unnecessary medical expenses. The insurance company will comb through your medical records and bills to make sure they are legitimate and related to the injuries you received in the motorcycle accident.
As an experienced accident lawyer, Jason has relationships with medical providers and will assist you with finding the best medical facilities to address your specific injuries. Call us today at 404-565-1618 for a free consultation regarding your motorcycle accident injuries.
Pain and Suffering:
Pain and suffering is an important component of your injury claim. However, it is difficult to quantify how much your pain and suffering is worth. In theory, the value of your pain and suffering is generally related to the amount of your medical bills.
However, in some circumstances, your pain and suffering is not reflected in the medical bills. Broken bones are a great example of an injury where your pain and suffering is not reflected in the medical bills. Generally broken bones are very painful injuries that significantly disrupt daily life. Yet, this type of injury rarely requires frequent or continuous medical treatment to recover. In this circumstance, you need an experienced injury lawyer to negotiate the true value of this injury – despite not having significant medical expenses.
Property Damage is another component that may have an impact on the value of your settlement. Although this is not the most significant component of your injury claim, it is important to know how property damage can impact the value your claim.
If your motorcycle is damaged, you should always file a property damage claim and have your vehicle repaired. Naturally, an insurance adjuster will be skeptical if an injured party claims to have serious injuries resulting from an accident where there is no reported damage to an involved vehicle.
Lost Wages are another component of the overall value of your motorcycle accident injury claim. If you are unable to work and are not being paid after being injured, the law allows you to seek compensation for all wages lost due to your injuries. In some situations, lost wages may also include other financial benefits, such as bonuses. Ultimately, the amount of your lost wage claim must be proven by your financial records or pay stubs reflecting your earnings for the period of time leading up to your accident as well as documentation reflecting your earnings after you were injured.
If you suffered a permanent injury that impacts your future earnings, you will need to pursue a claim for lost earning capacity. This is a special claim that applies if you are never able to recover to the extent necessary to be employed in the same capacity as you were prior to your accident. This type of claim is most prevalent in careers involving physical labor.
If you were injured in a motorcycle accident and have lost wages as a result, call (404) 565-1618 for a free, no obligation consultation with an injury lawyer.
Can I sue if a family member was killed in a motorcycle accident?

Unfortunately, the Georgia office of Highway safety reports that fatalities in motorcycle accidents have been steadily increasing over the last fifteen years. Motorcycle fatalities represent 12% of all vehicle fatalities in Georgia and typically occur in the metro Atlanta area.
